You know when you say to someone 'Hey, I like WWE', more often than not, you will be met with a response of 'you know it's fake, right?!'

First of all, it's scripted, second of all, it certainly isn't fake, and NXT superstar Austin Aries can vouch for that after he recently suffered a gruesome eye injury whilst sharing the ring with Shinsuke Nakamura.

Aries and Nakamura were competing at an NXT event when The King of Strong Style did what he does best and kicked his opponent, but he clearly kicked too hard and too realistically as it caught Aries right on the eye.

After the kick happened, the referee immediately threw up the dreaded 'X' sign, which let everyone know that it was a legit injury and not a sell or anything otherwise.

Due to the injury, the match was instantly stopped, and although Aries was able to get up and walk out of the ring and up the ramp by himself, he has since posted a rather nasty image on his official Twitter account of his eye.

With the WWE Universe worried about the injury he sustained at the live event in Fresno, California, Aries tweeted a selfie of his face, and it's clear to see what the problem is.

His right eye was basically not there anymore, as all you could see was major swelling and a black and purple patch.

You can see the image he posted below.

Luckily, Aries saw the funny side and captioned the photo with 'A smile and a wink for y'all.'

So, what a surprise, WWE isn't fake after all.
